Hello. Come on in. The daddy writes about current events, literature, music and, once in a while, drops something on you from back in the day to make you pause and ponder, stop and stare, and begin to wonder. Who knows? You may start to pace the floor, shake your head from side to side, then fall down on bended knees in a praying position and cry, "Lawd, have mercy! What is this world coming to?" Check yourself! But this blog is NOT about the daddy. It's about you: your boos, your fam, your hood, your country...our hopes and dreams of a better tomorrow. So let's make a pact: the daddy will put it on the track if you'll chase it down and hit him back. Together, we can definitely take it to another level. Shall we?"

James Brown - In The 60'S / I Got The Feelin' Movie Description

In the immediate wake of Martin Luther King's assassination, many of America's inner cities became fraught with riots, and the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston was threatening to erupt once and for all. Nervous at the possibility, Boston's mayor contacted soul legend James Brown, who had a major concert scheduled for the night after the historic murder, and asked for help. Brown, already a burgeoning civil rights hero, allowed the concert to be televised, and urged his fans to stay home--a peace-keeping move now credited with keeping the city from burning. VH1's "Rock Doc" THE NIGHT JAMES BROWN SAVED BOSTON, presented here alongside two other full-length James Brown concerts from the 1960s, features rarely seen footage of the historic performance, and and explores the remarkable events of the tragic day.
